FANTASTIC SUNSETS FROM BEACH FRONT BALCONY! 9-14 AUG $800 INC TAX AND CLEAN!

Indian Rocks Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

FOUR NIGHT MINIMUM

Perfect Beach Getaway. Relax with a cool drink and spectacular sunset from your balcony before dinner.

The Fiddler on the Beach is just a 2 minute walk to the quaint 'beachy' restaurant and shopping district of Indian Rocks Beach, and best of all - no need to take the car!

Further afield is all that Pinellas county has to offer in the way of entertainment, shopping, culture, sports, golf, amusement parks and more.

Each bedroom has a water view, one facing the beach the other the intra coastal waterway. The Balcony off the Living Room overlooks lush tropical gardens and sand dunes and then the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A modern fully equipped kitchen, light and airy living/dining room and two full bathrooms complete the package.

There is a King size bed in the main bedroom and the second bedroom has two doubles. For an adult or child, we keep a foldaway bed.

The beachside pool with sun loungers is a perfect place to while away a few hours with a good book, or beachcomb along the pristine sands of Indian Rocks Beach.

Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, two parks adjacent to one another in Tampa are wonderful day visits particularly for families with children.

Downtown St Petersburg has several world renowned museums and a host of smaller galleries and parks, the waterfront and marina.

Pinellas County has two of the top USA ranked beaches, Caladesi Island and Fort de Soto state parks. In between these are over 20 miles of glorious white sand, pristine beaches, all open to the public.

While you are here, check out the atmospheric smaller towns of Dunedin - an arty waterfront town and Tarpon Springs, with its historic sponge docks and very Greek, mediterranean flavor and downtown Safety Harbor.

If that hasn't tired you out, sport is our big thing here too!

Golf, tennis, water sport of every kind particularly fishing, pro football, baseball and hockey during season and winter training and games for baseball.

Don't want to drive too much? We have a great public transport system and all along the beaches from Clearwater to St Petersburg beach you can hop on and off the Jolly Trolley street car, low price single fares or weekly passes can be purchased locally.

We are beach loving folks, who enjoy the quieter atmosphere of island communities.

Sunsets, a stroll to the local cafe or bar for a dinner, beachcombing and just relaxing on the sand with a book. Our vacation spot is just what the doctor ordered!

Rick Barton and Susan Lumb purchased this condo in 2008

Proximity to the center of Indian Rocks, but on the outskirts so it is quiet. Close enough to stroll, far enough to feel the calm.

The opportunity to take the trolley bus from just outside the building to explore further afield - south to St Pete's Beach or north to Clearwater Beach.

Sunsets, water views all around, walking distance to cafes, restaurants and bars, and to listen to great love music! Heated pool in winter. The wildlife on the beach.....wow!!

GREAT WEEK AT INDIAN ROCKS BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Indian Rocks Beach escaping the cool New England spring weather. We liked the two floors of the condo, the separation of the two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and nice living area. Enjoyed the ocean front balcony. Loved the heated pool and beach toys/noodles available for use there. Beach chairs and umbrella provided by owner. Great location near restaurants.

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week in Indian Rocks Beach and this condo was perfect for our vacation. The view of the gulf from the living room and balcony was breath-taking, and the balcony was a great place for morning coffee or a sunset glass of wine. Rick and Susan have done an excellent job of providing a comfortable and cozy vacation rental. We have family in Orlando, and there was even a pack 'n play for our grandson when they came to join us for a couple of days. We had a couple of cooler days during our visit, so the fact that the pool is heated was very much appreciated! The local restaurants had great seafood, and we especially enjoyed Keegan's, which has been featured on The Food Channel, and the Seabreeze Island Grille in Redington. We also enjoyed the local art center and the turtle park.

LOVED OUR STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
Another MN family here who could no longer stand the cold and snow. What an escape to paradise we got! Stopped at the Publix on our way in and got all the necessities. First of all, love the location. You can walk to the CVS, Lighthouse Donuts, Crabby Bill's, Kooky Coconut and several other places. The area is quiet and peaceful. We owned the beach! Also loved that it was an easy drive down the Gulf Blvd to sightsee. Drove down and had great cones at the Twistee Treat (about 45 minutes south) Spent one day up in Clearwater and took a boat ride.
Next, the condo-it was as lovely as the pictures show. Loved having two floors and the bedrooms above. The master bedroom is lovely and the second bedroom with two full beds was perfect for our kids. The kitchen is well appointed and we took advantage of the many books there to read. The pool was a quick walk and never busy, although our daughters did make new friends.
Our few negatives are very small. The microwave did not work well. There were no toys/noodles in the closet for the beach. We bought some and left them behind. Also would have loved plastic cups and plates for smaller children.
That said, would book this place again without a doubt.

Owner's Response: Hi Janice, many thanks for your great review.
I'm sorry you had problems with the microwave. It was newly replaced December 2013 so we will check that out.
Thank you for leaving some beach toys....we sometimes just have too many in the cupboard and have to have a clear out, but guests are always welcome to use the ones down at the pool.
We hope you will come and enjoy our piece of paradise again!

PERFECT WINTER BREAK

  • 5 of 5
We've had a long winter in Minnesota so we decided to spend a few days at the beach in Florida. This condo was PERFECT! Nice layout, comfortable rooms, beautiful views - everything was excellent. Minor snafu but rental manager on premises took care of us very quickly, owners also very responsive. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!
